The church of San Salvatore, recently transformed into a museum and exhibition space, is one of the Fondazione Pistoia Musei venues.
During its recent restoration, the deconsecrated church of San Salvatore, was recently transformed into a museum-exhibition space. It is one of the Fondazione Pistoia Musei venues.
This small yet invaluable museum tells the story of the oldest part of the city through new discoveries; a variety of visual, sound, and tactile languages; and digital interactions. The restoration and excavations have brought to light the remains of the most ancient parts of the church and of pre-existing Roman and early medieval structures.
In addition, new light has been shed on the legend that Catiline was buried at the foot of the tabernacle found on the street.
Clearly, the most extraordinary discovery has been an incomplete fresco with Lamentation over the Dead Christ, datable to the end of the 13th century and attributed to the circle of Lippo di Benivieni.
